Thought I’d check out this Live Writer thing and see if I could put it on both blogs with one writing. Bought new chicken food today and managed to muscle the 50lb bag into the trunk myself---although it was touch and go getting the stupid bag out of the shopping cart. The chicks are old enough now to have regular “layers” food instead of “chicken starter.” It’s kind of like going from Gerber foods to the real thing, I guess.
They are growing by leaps and bounds and both the two Orpingtons and the 4 Rhode Island Reds along with Charlie (Arcana Rooster) are getting more mature. They love it when we have corn on the cob for dinner because they get to peck on the cobs afterwards and they LOVE that!
Spot still lets me touch her, but she’s the only one who does. There is one Orpington I call Fluffy because she always fluffs up her feathers to make her look enormous! All the chicks come running to greet me when I come to see them. It warms my heart. Yeah, I know they are JUST chickens but they’ve become more than that. They’re my little “herd!”
